HWY 14 #3

Above - Postcard view of original Belleville Bay Bridge on Hwy 62, formerly Hwy 14 (ca. 1910). The structure shown above was completed as a toll bridge in 1890. It was replaced by the Department of Public Highways in stages between 1927 and 1931 with new steel truss spans, a swing span, and a short causeway. This Belleville Bay Swing Bridge was replaced with the current high-level structure in 1982.

HWY 62 #17 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 62 #20 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - The Melville Creek culvert was extended on the western side in the 1960s to allow for the new alignment of Hwy 14 (later Hwy 62). The bridge has only one railing on the western side. The eastern side is only protected by a guide rail. The structure definitely looks very odd from the roadway level!
